Stylized Characters In Blender 3D
From A to Z on Blender Characters
Course Format: On-Demand Training
Skill Level: Intermediate
Duration: ~4 hours
Assignment: Astronaut Character
Prerequisite: Basic knowledge of Blender interface
Learn to model your 3D characters. This blender course will cover the modeling of our worm rig and astronaut. This way you can start simple before modeling the more complex astronaut.
Blender shines at rigging these stylized characters. Remington will show you exactly how to rig characters quickly and easily. He’ll walk you through the use of bendy bones and weight painting.
Texturing & Lighting
Bring your characters out of the greyscale and make them beautiful with your own shaders and UV map. Paint your character details directly in Blender and move quickly into lighting with real time rendering.

What you'll learn
Learn to create appealing and stylized character in Blender. After this course you'll go from pencil sketch concepts to fully modeled, rigged, textured and lit characters.
You will learn the hard surface modeling techniques available to you in Blender 3d. You’ll learn to manipulate your models and ensure your geometry is ready to be rigged.
Learn the incredible rigging tools of Blender 3d. You’ll learn to use the bendy bone system and have full control over your worm rig. We’ll use a more traditional rigging workflow for our astronaut character.
This is not an animation workshop, but we will need to move our rigs around and see how the weight painting looks. We will make adjustments based on the pushed poses we think we might want later in animation.
We will quickly get our models set-up for texture painting so we can make custom beautiful shaders.
This is a powerful workflow that gives you control over the look.
Remington will show you how to quickly add painted details to your characters.
We can create beautiful, hand-painted looks directly inside Blender!
Finally, you’ll learn to light your characters to examine how our shaders look.
Once we start lighting the scene this is the end of our look development process and our scenes are ready for animation.
We believe feedback is the best way to improve.

Creative Director & Animator
I’m a motion design: art director, animator, and illustrator with a love for all things 2D and 3D. When I’m not working with clients, I am a creative director at MoGraph Mentor. It’s a blessing to be part of the motion design community. I enjoy teaching others in MoGraph Mentor, Skillshare, and Youtube courses with a focus on character design and animation.
If you catch me away from my computer, I’m probably hiking, volunteering, or traveling with my lovely wife and spoiled dogs.
